The trio said the UAE has developed a systematic response plan to confront the effects of the spread of Covid-19, pandemic to ensure business continuity, achieve recovery and restore growth within a record period.
As per the new plan, Omani citizens are required to present a negative PCR test result, provided the pre-examination is from accredited laboratories in their country, and that the validity period of the test does not exceed 48 hours from the date of the test, stated the report.
